Vijender Singh last fought a professional bout way back on 23rd December 2017 against a much fancied Ernest Amuzu of Ghana. The 2008 Olympic bronze medallist didn’t left any stones unturned and thumped Amuzu in a 10 round bout by a unanimous decision at Sawai Mansingh stadium in Jaipur.
Since then the fans have been waiting for his next professional bout but the puglist from Bhiwani struggled to land a title fight in 2018. He went onto sign a multiyear deal with America’s Top rank on 20 November 2018 and is currently training in the United States of America.
